It would be cheaper to buy .460Wby brass and neck up.

A square says 2400 gps for factory but most in SA don't load as hot because of vicious recoil. Chronology is more like 2150fps and this is all you ll need. SD is . 330 . Let us know how you do on eleys and buff! Also what bullet you use.

The A square is whby460 based and wells is a lot bigger. Latter is .5 " longer than parent .585 nyati which is based on .577 NE. About as powerful as any shoulder rifle you can get without going to Barrett or 50Bmg

That does not seem correct many sources including a gunsmith says they are nearly identical not .5 longer

My apologies. In my quick scan I thought you meant the wells 585 express which is the bigger case. The 510 wells was designed 20 years before the 500 a square by Fred wells and is essentially same with slight shoulder difference as I understand them.

Re: Wanted 500 A-Square cases, dies and reloading data

As I was told the wells is slighly longer amd can you can fire an A2 in a wells. But I guess I have made up my mind and the ability to carry some factory rounds and gives the slight edge to the 500 A-sqaured. I can see no advantage to the 510 Wells. If anyone knows soemthing else please chime in.
